by admin on October 18, 2018

Queensland had a great run throughout the Australian Senior Sides with notable wins over Victorian and New South Wales sides. (Pictured left: The Queensland Over 60s sides who contested the 2018 Australian Senior Sides Championships in South Australia.)

Over four tough days South Australia’s Yorke Peninsula saw 160 of the country’s most accomplished Over 60’s bowlers who represented eight State and Territories battle it out over seven rounds in a round robin format, across both the Wallaroo and Moonta Memorial bowling clubs.

Queensland finished the championships on a high note with a 68-59 win and a 58-55 win for the men and women respectively over ACT, the win boosted the men’s side into second place from third place but made no difference to the Queensland women’s fifth-place standing.

Both Queensland sides had a great run throughout the event and had some notable wins over the Victorian and New South Wales sides.

Queensland awarded Louise Witton and Neville Jenkins with the Queensland’s player of the series award for their efforts in the event.

Meanwhile, Victoria continued their impressive run of men’s sides and was crowned with the John Dobbie AM Men’s trophy as the best-performed Men’s team and collected the Glyn Bosisto MBE Overall Champions trophy along with their gong as the best overall team.

It was New South Wales (NSW) who pipped Western Australia (WA) for the Betty Collins OAM Women’s trophy, sealing the triumph on the very last end of the last-finishing rink in their match against Western Australia.
